Waimea Town Festival
22nd and 23rd of February 2013 and it was time for the Waimea Town Festival here in Kaua’i, Hawaii. And what a great fun event. Waking up at 4:30am to get ready for the Captain Cook Caper Fun Run over 5km. At 6am registration for the event and then with the bus to the start line. Start at 7am and running into the sunrise. Wow this was amazing and maybe that’s why I ran so fast: 18:25min
After the winner ceremony it was time to check out the Towns Celebration Venue. With great music and good food. Very relaxing atmosphere. As they where still looking for participants for the ice cream contest in my age group I joint in last minute. Sitting next to a guy who was very serious about that competition. 2min time to finish the ice cream. He finished it after 1:45min. Wow! And I was still enjoying the ice cream 🙂 Guess what the winner won? Yeah right: ICE CREAM!!!
At the venue I met a very friendly Norwegian couple with there two kids which I met on the airport more than a week ago. We had great conversations and thus another great day here in Hawaii. Check out some pictures:
